Thankful for the friends who speak to my heart. All live far away from me by varying degrees, but each one of them brings something special to the table. Some are going through losses or difficult times right now, and others are thriving. We can always count on each other to mourn, celebrate, and grow with each other. These people fill the places in my heart that aren’t already filled by family (and I have a huge family). They lift me, they hug me, they love me. I have amazing people in my life, and I am thankful for each and every one of them.
